Strawberry kiwi smoothie ingredient notes
You only need a few simple ingredients to make this healthy strawberry kiwi smoothie. We do recommend at least one of the fruits is frozen. If your fruit is all fresh, add a handful of ice and omit the water. If you have more than one frozen ingredient, you may need to add more water.
Here's everything that goes into this strawberry kiwi smoothie:
- Kiwi – kiwis are a rich source of vitamin C, which is great for your immune system. They can be tart but the sweetness of the ripe banana helps to balance it out.
- Banana – bananas are very nutritious and make this smoothie creamy. The riper the banana, the sweeter it is!
- Strawberries – in-season strawberries are sweet and juicy whereas frozen strawberries can be a bit more tart.
- Yogurt – yogurt makes this smoothie more substantial and enhances it with probiotics. We prefer plain Greek yogurt but you can use any yogurt. Use a dairy-free yogurt or full-fat coconut milk to make it a vegan smoothie.
- Water – we use water but you can also use milk or a non-dairy alternative like almond milk for a more creamy texture.
- Honey – honey is optional but adds a touch of natural sweetness to offset the tartness of the kiwis. Use agave or maple syrup to keep it plant-based.

Strawberry kiwi smoothie add-ins
This strawberry banana kiwi smoothie recipe is simple which gives you lots of room to add ingredients to suit your tastes or nutritional needs. Here are some ideas for easy add-ins:
- Protein powder – give your smoothie a protein boost with a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Vanilla tastes great, but unflavored works well, too.
- Nut butter – a tablespoon or two of nut butter will add healthy fat and protein, making this smoothie more satiating. Almond butter, cashew butter, and even peanut butter taste great.
- Chia seeds or hemp seeds – these little seeds are nutritional powerhouses and a tablespoon or two will give your smoothie a boost of omega 3's and plant-based protein.
- Leafy greens – you can never go wrong with leafy greens like a handful of spinach or kale. Keep in mind it will change the color of this smoothie.
Is this smoothie sweet?
Kiwis tend to be a bit tart, but if your banana and strawberries are ripe and sweet, they will balance the kiwi's tart flavor. We recommend making the smoothie without the honey, tasting it, and adding honey to taste.
Can I make this smoothie ahead of time?
Like all smoothies, they're best enjoyed right away. You can easily make this one in the morning and take it to go. It'll keep at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
Can you freeze kiwis for smoothies?
Yep! To freeze kiwis, remove the skin and then slice or chop them. Lay them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper in a single layer and then pop them into your freezer. Once they're frozen, transfer them to an airtight container and they'll keep in your freezer for up to 3 months!
